Competitive Landscape(Pretty Important Disclaimer): Take a look at our perspective on the competitive landscape. The facts expressed here belong to everybody, the opinions are solely those of Arcserve. The distinction is yours to draw...
CommVault Simpana, formerly known as Galaxy (wow, it’s a been a while!) is an enterpri$e $olution and is the only vendor other than Arcserve to provide a unified platform. However, it typically requires expensive professional services and is not as easy to deploy or use as Arcserve UDP…and its high availability capabilities are hmm…unavailable. If you’ve got the dough and like your software complicated, go for it!
Symantec Backup ExecTM
After a recent Mea Culpa release (that’s Latin for “we really messed up”, a modern English translation), it is sad to see the decline of this solution. There is not much else to say. It’s time to pull the plug and move to another solution.
This is a severe case of split personalities. No unification but rather a juxtaposition of solutions, and from what I hear, a pretty old soul when it comes to usability. It’s a bit like a sushi menu: you want a roll (appliance)…we got that. You want some tempura (virtual data protection). We got that too. You get the idea. All smells a bit fishy to us…
Veeam just works…because it just doesn’t do that much. Virtual only, which is a huge limitation, just getting started with tape support, and there’s this large hypervisor competitor providing a lot of their functionality for…free. No high availability, no physical server support. If you are looking for more complexity and less coherence in your data protection infrastructure, this is the one for you. I want my one trick little pony for Christmas. My little one trick pony just works.
See why the experts rank Arcserve UDP higher than the competition
Okay. We said it. Arcserve UDP is the only unified solution that protects both virtual and physical servers, is easy to use, and has a cost-effective price. But don’t take our word for it. Give it a try for yourself and experience the power of unification.
